Why are you passionate about helping entrepreneurs?
The spirit of entrepreneurism is really catching. There’s a lot of momentum, especially in Oklahoma, not only for starting new businesses but for growing and expanding existing ones. I thrive on that opportunity. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs – three generations – so you could also say it’s in my blood.
